Getting Married on the Mountain

The Highlands Plateau may be one of the most romantic places on earth to be married, and is quickly becoming the premiere wedding destination of the south, with a wide variety of venues, each taking advantage of the many unique opportunities of the mountains.

Marriage licenses may be obtained at the Macon County courthouse in Franklin, Monday through Friday from 8:30 until 4:30. You must be 18 years of age and have a photo identification card and social security card.
